Keys of old Dispensary handed over

The Teach Na nDaoine project has moved a step closer to being a reality with the handing over of the keys today to Steve Kinneavy and Jacinta Sully, writes Brian Byrne.

A programme of work can now be put in place for the project, which was initiated by Albert Keenan and the first steps put in train last summer, and negotiations with the HSE for the use of the old Dispensary begun.

Some hiccups with the lease delayed the start of the project, but they're now resolved.

A number of fundraisers have already raised some working money, but there will be a need for volunteers to take up the actual work. "There's a lot to be done," says Jacinta Sully.

More details later when they get the work programme in train.
